Harmony: an Apache-licensed Java

Posted on Sat 07 May 2005
Apache launches "Harmony", a new and independent implementation of J2SE 5.0 under the Apache license.

This project is likely to change the Java landscape, if it comes to life, by federating energies around a fully-featured opensource Java implementation. Once we have that, Java will be no more considered as a non-free technology and can spread on Linux boxes everywhere.

Interesting times ahead...
